Anchor Summer Beer


Anchor Brewing’s Summer Beer is a pale wheat all malt ale, in the style of a classic English pale ale.    It pours super pale, one of the lightest golden beers I’ve seen this side of Corona, with a light, billowy head that Anchor calls “similar to meringue” which I find to be an accurate description.   The scent is a slightly nutty, toasty malt, and the flavor is muted with some lemon.    It’s pretty heavily carbonated, and that, along with the light malt flavor give it some distinct similarities to a Pilsner, like Boston Lager.   It’s a nice light summer beer for sure, but I think I’m going to look for something with a bit more hop kick for my go-to lawnmower beer.

I give it a 2.7 out of 5.
